Truth be told.

Today was actually rather nice, Alice pulled me out of a cesspit and we had a lovely day of Halloween preparation, i didn't think it possible for me to do anything today, especially after my overdose on social lubricant last night.

When not with Alice I spent a lot of time sitting and reading through blogs. I'm feeling me posting regular on here has to become a permanent thing. I'm Trying to get/be inspired for my next piece of work, i don't wanna have time to stop or slow in between.

I had an interesting dream a few nights back about a piece of work i am planning to pursue, the dream was just loads of ideas and imagery about this kaleidoscope video i was planning (in the dream not before), unfortunately i dont remember the dream that well just certain specific parts, but all the same its a nice new starting point. I think this video may have sparked it, and sams appreciation of 50 pence pieces.

And finally I am really excited to see fantastic mr fox this coming week, i cant actually wait. Me and dearest Rebecca shall make our way to the cinema some time and enjoy some brilliant stop frame.

this project i have worked on with both Esther and George. It involves sets, puppets and maps, combining each of our efforts from the summer project to create a marvelous animation. The story itself i wont say much about, other than a summary given by a tutor Antony Head:

"so its basically about a magic map"

here are some images of us making the sets for the animation:

Esther overjoyed by the humble mayors mansion.

The Mayors magic map.

George, me and the Mayors home.

Building the robbers sewer.

More to come hopefully very soon.
